    Is there a way to show your current speed while using google navigation or google maps? I see a couple of aps in the market that show your speed on the whole screen, but that is it.

    Thanks

    Google "My Tracks" .... it's free. Once you start recording your track, it will overlay on a sort-of Google Map looking map. Click on the screen, then click one page to the right. It's all the stats about how fast you're going, how far you've gone, etc.

    I just drove cross country with my Droid in a moving truck that had a broken speedometer. I started Google Maps, then started Navigation (so I could hear the turn by turn navigation prompts). Then I opened the Google My Tracks app and started recording my "Track". After it started recording, I went to the second page and instantly had a working speedometer!

    +1 for Google and Droid!

    Best regards,
    Brad
